Michael Bolton Set For Debut Jamaica Performance At 2007 Air Jamaica Jazz & Blues Festival

Grammy award-winning superstar Michael Bolton is set to perform for the first time ever in Jamaica next month, courtesy of organizers of the 2007 Air Jamaica Jazz and Blues Festival. Bolton’s performance in Jamaica has been a long time in the making. As a family man and a single parent of three, Jamaica was Bolton’s vacation spot of choice for years. He even learned to snorkel and received his water sport’s certification in this beautiful Caribbean country. But despite invitations from several promoters, a performance never materialized. But come January 2007, the singer, who has sold over 53 million records worldwide and has become a towering figure in the world of music, will grace a Jamaican stage in Montego Bay at the 2007 Air Jamaica Jazz and Blues Festival. It is an event he describes as “a land mark moment because it is the tenth anniversary” of the festival. So what can the thousands of fans expect from this versatile performer? “Some great surprises,” said Bolton, ading that he expects to deliver hits like ‘Soul Provider,’ ‘How Am I Suppose to Live without You’ “with some variations” to make them “feel fresh.” And he will add the big band sound and some swing. Over the last twenty years, the singer and songwriter has lent his unique vocal style to many genres of music, including rhythm & blues, jazz, swing and opera. Bolton, who will be recording two albums in January, says one will be part of his roots and he is going to bring that to the Jamaican stage. Sponsors of the 2007 festival include Air Jamaica, The Jamaica Tourist Board, American Express, Digicel, Caribbean Producers and Ocean Spray.
